Quick update on novel
The last few days have been a little slower as far as writing goes, as my few days’ absence from WordPress may have hinted. Nonetheless, I’m still making progress: my main antagonist has now been introduced at more-or-less the correct time , and tomorrow I expect to finally cross the 30k mark. I’d have liked to do that a few days’ earlier, but I can’t say I’m overly concerned. This is already shaping up to be the best summer for writing since…well,ever, actually.
This antagonist is…a rather interesting character, if I do say so myself. He is only actually set to appear thrice in the whole novel and only becomes properly villainous between his second and third appearances, though his actions begin to cause problems for my protagonist not long after his introduction. Said introduction actually came out a little underwhelming, though I’m not particularly concerned about this for the time being. The second scene with him, on the other hand, is rather crucial and so I’d quite like to get that one right on the first run through. Guess I’ll just have to wait and see if that actually happens.
On the reading front, meanwhile, I finally finished The Ocean at the End of the Lane this morning. Long story short, it was an absolutely splendid read from start to finish and you really ought to give it a read at some point if you have not done so already. Long story long…well, be sure to check for that tomorrow evening. Mark my words: I will be reading more from Gaiman in the future.
